All of the Metropolis city shots (both day and night) are really shots of Downtown Los Angeles (in Los Angeles, California). See more »
The U.S. flag in Lex's poster is not hanging in accordance with U.S. Army regulations. When the flag is hanging downward, the union (blue field with white stars) is supposed to be facing toward the left, not the right. See more »
Great Second Superheroic Effort from the Director of Batman: Dead End
Sandy Collora's World's Finest is a faux film preview featuring the cinematic team-up of D.C. Comics' two greatest heroes and cultural icons, Superman and Batman.
Collora opted for a different approach to filming his comic book heroes, this time using less atmospheric, lighter fare and giving his audience what constitutes a three-minute tease.
Having said that, World's Finest is a very fine display of the directorial talents of Sandy Collora and is a great follow-up to his masterpiece Batman: Dead End.
Clark Bertram returns as the Dark Knight Detective, and is in fine form, but it's Michael O'Hearn's Man of Steel that really steals the show. O'Hearn does a tremendous job of embodying Superman on screen, and carries the physical presence to pull it off realistically and seriously. Once again, Collora evokes the artwork of comic book painter Alex Ross in his choice of actors and set pieces, and once again, it works terrifically.
Kurt Carley, the Predator of Batman: Dead End, portrays a fleeting, but ominous Lex Luthor, and the gorgeous and sultry Nina Kaczorowski is fine as Lois Lane.
The trailer is a spine-tingling experience for comics fans and fans of superhero movies, but it does leave the audience a bit wistful with its short running time and cliffhanger feel.
Sandy Collora has proved once more that he is a capable filmmaker and here's hoping this will be a further boost to an already impressive career.
